  1. OVERVIEW The F1 series of games support the outputting of key game data via a UDP data stream. This data can be interpreted by external apps or connected peripherals for a range of different uses, including providing additional telemetry information, customised HUD displays, motion platform hardware support or providing force feedback data for custom steering wheels. The following information is a summary of the data that is outputted so that developers of supporting hardware or software are able to configure these to work with the F1 game correctly. If the information you require is not contained here, or if you have any issues with the UDP data itself, then please let us know and a member of the dev team will respond to your query as soon as possible.
  2. OverviewThe F1 series of games support output of game data to external devices such as D-BOX, other motion platforms, steering wheels and LED devices that are connected to your PC or console. The purpose of this document is to summarise the data that is outputted so that developers of supporting hardware or software are able to configure these to work with the F1 game correctly. If the information you require is not contained in this document then please contact custservice@codemasters.com, specifying the information you require and a member of the dev team will respond to your query as soon as possible. D-BOX Output D-Box output is currently supported on the PC platform. To tell the game to interact with a connected D-BOX motion platform, users should edit the games’ configuration XML file. The file is located here (after an initial boot of the game):       ...\Documents\My Games\<game_folder>\hardwaresettings\hardware_settings_config.xml You should see the tag:      <motion>        <dbox enabled="false" />        ...      </motion> Set the “enabled” value to “true” to allow the game to output to your D-BOX motion platform. Enabling the UDP Telemetry Output PC users need to update the game’s configuration XML file to enabler UDP output. The file is located here (after an initial boot of the game):       ...\Documents\My Games\<game_folder>\hardwaresettings\hardware_settings_config.xml You should see the tag:      <motion>        ...        <udp0 enabled="false" ip="127.0.0.1" port="20777" />        <udp1 enabled="false" ip="127.0.0.1" port="20777" />        <udp2 enabled="false" ip="127.0.0.1" port="20777" />        <udp3 enabled="false" ip="127.0.0.1" port="20777" />          ...      </motion> Set the “enabled” value to “true” to allow the game to output to data via UDP for the selected UDP channel and set the IP address and port to where you want the packets to be sent. The PC supports the outputting of up to 4 UDP channels to allow multiple applications to receive the UDP information. Please enable and configure the IP and port information for each channel as required. N.B. For F1 2015, you do not need the number after the udp XML tag. In F1 2016, UDP telemetry output can also be transmitted from PS4 and Xbox One. To enable this, enter the options menu from the main menu (triangle / Y), then enter the settings menu - the UDP option will be at the bottom of the list. From there you will be able to enable / disable the UDP output, configure the IP address and port for the receiving application and toggle broadcast mode. Broadcast mode transmits the data across the console’s subnet to allow multiple devices on the same subnet to be able to receive this information. LED devices The F1 game has native support for some of the basic features supported by some external LED devices, such as the Leo Bodnar SLI Pro and the Fanatec steering wheels. To avoid conflicts between Codemasters’ implementation and any third-party device managers on the PC platform it may be necessary to disable the native support. This is done using the following led_display flags in the hardware_settings_config.xml. The file is located here (after an initial boot of the game): ...\Documents\My Games\<game_folder>\hardwaresettings\hardware_settings_config.xml The flags to enabled/disable LED output are: <led_display fanatecNativeSupport="true" sliProNativeSupport="true" /> The sliProNativeSupport flag controls the output to SLI Pro devices. The fanatecNativeSupport flag controls the output to Fanatec (and some related) steering wheel LEDs. Set the values for any of these to “false” to disable them and avoid conflicts with your own device manager. Please note there is an additional flag to manually control the LED brightness on the SLI Pro: <led_display forceBrightness="127" /> This option (using value in the range 0-255) will also be disabled when setting the nativeSupport flag to “false”.
